Harmony has unveiled a Bigsby-equipped version of its Silhouette. A super cool retro-inspired shift electric guitar Equipped with gold leaf mini-humbuckers, a nitrocellulose finish and American-made, the silhouette represents the epitome of high-end pawnshop kitsch.
Now with a Bigsby B5 tremolo, the Silhouette’s cut positively oozes vintage mojo. Heck, many have already been sold with the custom cupcake volume and tone controls, but look aside, this is a guitar of substance.
The Silhouette with Bigsby is available in a choice of Slate, Burgundy, and Space Black finishes, and has an alder body with a maple neck that is attached to the body with a three-bolt joint. It has an ebony fingerboard with a 12 “radius, 22 medium-jumbo frets, and a 25” scale length which gives it a sort of mid-range feel.
The Bigsby is complemented by a three-saddle ashtray-style coupe bridge and there is a set of locking tuners to help keep the oscillation under control.
In addition to what’s already a considerably stacked spec, we have a control circuit with orange drop-off capacitors, so when you turn those cupcake controls there should be a nice, defined taper.
Shipped in a MONO Vertigo electric guitar case, the Silhouette with Bigsby is available now, priced at £ / $ 1,549.
